NetworkNature is a resource for the nature-based solutions community, creating opportunities for local, regional and international cooperation to maximise the impact and spread of nature-based solutions. The project is funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme.

NetworkNature’s activities are:

  • Synthesize and strengthen the NBS evidence base by gathering experiences, knowledge, tools and services from over 30 Horizon 2020 projects.
  • Engage existing stakeholders and expand the NBS community to new sectors and target audiences, by creating new partnerships and identifying sectoral champions, sharing knowledge in dedicated events, educating young generations and communicating the latest findings in the field.
  • Ensure NBS science informs the policy agenda and vice versa. As an interface between NBS innovators and knowledge generators as well as business and policy makers, NetworkNature is a bridge between the European policy landscape and the NBS community.
  • Accelerate the uptake of NBS across science, business, policy and practice by providing guidance and capacity building, creating and operating new European NBS regional hubs, coordination of the EU H2020 Nature-based Solutions Task Forces and networking with practitioners, business, investors and policymakers.

NetworkNature is a joint effort by ICLEI EuropeIUCNBiodivERsAOppla and Steinbeis 2i  in close collaboration with the European Commission Directorate-General for Research and Innovation and Executive Agency for SMEs.

NetworkNature includes NbS case studies (accessed through a case study finder) and NbS resources that include different types of items (e.g. reports, briefs, papers, guidance, videos, etc). Some relevant resources include:
